Perfect Bones is set in the future in which scientists (via gene manipulation) are attempting to create enhanced, "perfect" humans in order to foster peace in the universe. But the first successful creations are sent away for further training, the super kids are kidnapped by an evil organization bent on using them to dominate the world.
Acquiring screening rights for anime series is nothing new for streaming services. Netflix has Knights of Sidonia and many other already released anime series available for streaming, while Crunchyroll, like Netflix is doing with Perfect Bones, has invested in the production of new anime series, and Hulu has acquired the rights to key new series like Sailor Moon Crystal (see "'Sailor Moon Crystal' on Hulu"). But Netflix has a huge worldwide customer base and more financial resources, so this deal could be the start of a direct distribution system that could benefit both the anime industry and anime fans around the world, and quite possibly radically alter the way anime series are distributed in the future.
